Guelph's Spring Mill Distillery in The Ward is producing hand sanitizer for sale to the public, with money raised through its sale going to local charities.

The product has also been donated to Guelph General Hospital.

The distillery, owned by John Sleeman, joins Dixon's Distilled Spirits on Elmira Road in switching some of its resources into producing hand sanitizer.

The sanitizer being produced at Spring Mill is 80 per cent ethyl alcohol, plus glycerine and hydrogen peroxide.

Purchases can be made by emailing then processing the sale via a returned phone call. The product is then picked up at their location on Arthur Street between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Cost is $5 for four 30ml bottles.

"Thanks again to our partners and suppliers who helped make this all possible – to KinsBrae Packaging who donated the 30ml bottles, Rayment & Collins for donating the hand sanitizer labels, Stanpac for donating the 64oz bottles and to Wood-Hall Logistics Inc. for all the shipping help – we can't thank you enough for partnering with us on this initiative," Spring Mill posted on its Facebook page.
